Economic profit dominance always has priority over climate protection. The logic of the financial markets to which climate protection often falls victim must be broken. A whole bundle of measures is necessary. Climate protection must go hand-in-hand with fighting poverty.

Industry and city officials, even charities and non-profit social change organizations are aware, but, unfortunately, all benefit materially, and are largely silent, watered down in their concerns, or structurally limited in instituting meaningful labor and environmental reforms.

The Zionists and Rightwing UK Labourites are launching a witch hunt against supposed anti-semites because they have exposed the historic relationship between the Nazis and the Zionists who colluded during the 2nd WW. Nazis were invited by the Zionists to Palestine because they agreed with the Nazi solution of Jews going to Palestine for their own state.

200 copies of this text were distributed as a beautiful zine during the May Day 2016 celebrations in Hamilton’s Beasley Park. A Steal City… Far and wide, Hamilton is known as the steel city. Historically, the largest producer of steel in the country, our solidly working-class city has been built around the steel industry.
